We have finally met the Apple Watch. In case you’ve been living under a rock, it looks like this.
Apple diehards all over the world are chomping at the bit to pre-order this thing beginning April 10.
Meanwhile, this is all I can think about:
Anyone else getting a weird trypophobic reaction to the Apple Watch? I'm sorry I ever learned about that phobia existing. I think I have it.

In case you didn’t know, trypophobia is the uncontrollable and completely irrational fear of objects that have an irregular pattern of holes. Those who claim to have the fear shudder over images of beehives, lotus seed heads, loofahs, coral, and the like.
Eventually it escalates, and trypophobics start seeing things like this.While trypophobia may not be a legitimate condition recognized by the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, that doesn’t mean people aren’t taking to Twitter to complain about the skin-crawling feeling the Apple Watch display is giving them.
